CONNEAUT LAKE, Pa. (WKBN) – Still fighting through Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Conneaut Lake Park announced it will not open for the summer due to COVID-19.

The park board of trustees said it hasn’t been given any guidance on whether amusement parks can operate in the “green phase” of Pennsylvania’s reopening plan.

That would allow businesses to run at only 50% capacity.

Trustees said that, along with social distancing protocols, would make it virtually impossible to reopen this summer.

They hope to continue the park’s 128-year-long tradition in 2021.
